Best Practice Guidelines review underway

By Lara Bullock|25 May 2016

The NSW Bar Association is undertaking a review of its Best Practice Guidelines, which seek to assist chambers to create healthy work environments for barristers and chambers staff.

On 19 June 2014, the Bar Council approved the NSW Bar Association’s set of four Best Practice Guidelines.

They are the Model Harassment, Discrimination, Vilification and Victimisation Best Practice Guideline; the Model Bullying Best Practice Guideline; the Model Parental and Other Extended Leave Best Practice Guideline; and the Model Grievance Handling Procedure.

Best Practice Guidelines are voluntary and a total of 34 floors have adopted the guidelines so far (full list below).

The Bar Association reviews and updates the guidelines annually to ensure they continue to reflect the needs of the bar, and relevant changes to the law.

As part of this review process, the association is welcoming any suggestions and comments on the content of the guidelines and their implementation.
